with israel. thank you. what happens with egypt will be the big turning point here. does egypt remain on the sidelines? egypt today condemned this action by the israelis. the question is what else will egypt do? we will have continuing coverage of the situation there. mideast security expert joins us live to explain the implications of the action there today, where the united states stands on it. and president obama visited some of the people after -- still hurting after hurricane sandy. we'll hear from him and one of the people dealing in the aftermath. the crisis in israel, and the crisis in the aftermath of the storm, those are both coming up. >>> continuing to watch live images coming in from the gaza. this is 10:23 p.m. obviously it is hours later there and night fall has been with them for many hours. our correspondent mentioned that the israeli air force are flying this, and they have hit a lot of targets today. the question is what happens with ground troops. let's bring in the former intelligence officer of defense. mike, good of you, thank you. let's start with the ground tr
in the days ahead. president obama also spoke last night with egypt president mohamed morsi about working together to preserve peace and security in the region. tension between israel and egypt's new islamist government has increased since the attacks with egypt recalling its ambassador to israel in protest. richard haass, also an emergency meeting of the u.n. security council last night. sift through this for us. how big is this? how significant is this in the middle east right now? >> well, it's big for lots of reasons, because it's not happening in isolation. one is you have the largest military clashes between israel and hamas in, what, four year now, and it's not going to stop. at times it doesn't matter in the middle east exactly why things begin. over the last few months there have been hundreds of rocket attacks, now this, then retaliation. it just happens. second of all, it's happening in the absence of anything political. there's no dialogue going on whatsoever between israelis and palestinians. this can't substitute for this. thirdly, egyptians withdrew their ambassador. since
's questions about whether egypt might get involved in some way, turkey as well. do you think -- do you see them rallying to hamas or not? >> the one government that's very sensitive to hamas and very friendly to hamas ironically is the morsi government in egypt. there have always been historic ties between gaza and egypt. egyptians are very sensitive to everything that goes on in gaza. >> many tunnels from egypt go into gaza to get supplies. >> absolutely. in fact, under mubarak it was much easier because mubarak couldn't care less about hamas. this is a very different issue here, because the muslim brotherhood in egypt really is the mothership, if you will, of hamas and other such organizations. but what will the egyptians do. they have recalled their ambassador from israel and they have told their people that look, president morsi is talking to president obama about bringing the fighting to a halt so that's one thing that we can look forward to. one thing that's very important, tomorrow is friday. there has already been calls for massive demonstration, a million people march, in cairo ag
, between israel and the palestinians, since egypt's leadership has changed. and we know that egypt has a different reaction to this than they did under president morsi than they had in the past under former president mubarak? >> reporter: absolutely. on a few different fronts. one, the leadership here, it's currently aligned with the one that runs egypt. and president morsi comes from that. and the more important one, for the past several days they've been trying to mediate between the palestinian faction in israel. they reached a truce, but that truce didn't hold for long. more importantly, israel is trying to resume a bit of a leadership role. yesterday, they lobbied to secure the security council. and also they convened with the arab league to try to put an end to the barrage of fire. some for its part are calling on egypt to sever ties with israel. that would be a major setback for the united states because the israeli/egyptian peace treaty has been a cornerstone of u.s. policy in the middle east. >> ayman, we'll be checking in with you all day, i imagine. thanks very much. >>> mov
-fire or a truce. they tried doing that a day ago using egypt as the intermediary, that fell through. now egypt has taken its ambassador out of israel, so who will do the mediation and who will try to get in between these two warring factions and try to get them to come together to stop this is going to be a real difficult, a real problem, i think, for the time being. but israel is saying, look, if you keep send rockets into our country, we are going to respond and we are going to respond with force. >> sara sidner inside gaza. >> wondering about that response inside the neighboring country. >>> coming up, how the president will pay personal attentions to the victims of sandy, just hours from now. [ boys screaming ] hi, i just switched jobs, and i want to roll over my old 401(k) into a fidelity ira. man: okay, no problem. it's easy to get started; i can help you with the paperwork. um...this green line just appeared on my floor. yeah, that's fidelity helping you reach your financial goals. could you hold on a second? it's your money. roll over your old 401(k) into a fidelity ira and take control of
rockets in any other way. of course there is some diplomatic activity going on, too, in egypt in particular, trying to organize a truce. only a 48-hour truce between israel and hamas. so there's a positive moves ahead going on trying to end this diplomatically. but not everybody is betting on that right now, alex. >> sounds like all the pieces are on the chess board for sure. thank you very much, martin fletcher. >> let's get some perspective on this crisis. joining me is military analyst general mccaffrey. is there a danger this could turn into a larger middle east war? >> no question. i think we're one step shorter of an all out ground operation in the gaza. i don't see how the israelis could top rate continued threat to huge parts of the civilian population. and then in the background, of course, we have the iranians and hezbollah on the lebanese southern border. the israelis are quite vulnerable to these rocket strikes. fit went to all-out war there would be significant israeli losses. >> all right, general, would the u.s. get involved militarily if this does escalate? >>
regarding that anti-islamic film. there had been rioting in egypt and of course, this is the contradictory thread of the narrative here, that it was riots that -- in egypt that led to the attack on the embassy in libya on the consulate in libya. so he's going to talk about having these two threads of information but his sense right from the start that it was a terrorist attack by answar al sharia. a pretty murky group, loose collection of characters. >> this is interesting to me. just to be clear, your source is saying general petraeus knew almost immediately or felt that it was a terrorist attack, knew the group involved, even though he told members of congress three days after the attack that it could have been spontaneous and there's also the statement made by the director of national intelligence on the dni the end of october who put out a statement saying in the wake of criticism of ambassador rice, saying that early reports indicated it might have been linked to -- might have been a spontaneous demonstration and ambassador rice went out on sunday saying -- five days after, saying it
or the cia felt at that point that this was a protest as a result of what happened with the film with egypt. he clarified that after more information came in, there was not a protest. >> general petraeus' testimony comes today the morning after cia acting director michael morell and james clapper the director of national int intelligence went before members of congress in two other hearings and hours after attorney general eric holder defended the decision not to bring members of congress into the loop sooner. >> we follow the facts. we do not share outside the justice department, outside the fbi the facts of ongoing investigations. we made the determination as we were going through the matter that there was not a threat to national security. >> let's jump right in and bring in our friday morning political power panel. we have jackie kucinich political reporter for "usa today", democratic strategist blake zeb and msnbc contributor robert trainum. great to have you all here. we just heard from congressman king earlier today saying the general was asked right off the top whether the affair ha
've pulled your ambassador out of cairo. is that peace treaty stween israel and egypt on the verge of collapse? >> it's vital not just for israel, egypt, it's vital for the entire region, for the world. we understand this. we think the egyptians understand this full well. the egyptians have played a constructive role in the past mediating -- i think they can play the similar role today. >> are they? >> i think they can. >> but are that? >> that's all i can say right now is i think they can play a constructive role. and we hope they will. >> that suggests to me they're not yet doing that. >> well, right now the situation's very fluid on the ground. and hamas shows every intention of escalating further. it's not stepping down. >> mr. ambassador, thanks very much for coming in. we're watching this situation very, very closely. >> thank you, wolf. >> michael oren is the israeli ambassador to the united states. in our next hour we're going to take a look at what the u.s. -- if the u.s. can do anything about this escalating violence that's going on, the tensions escalating between the is
of years. it used to be egypt was run by hosni mubarak, a strong ally of the united states and israel. now you have the must be must be be -- muslim brotherhood in charge. the question is whether they'll be strong enough to stop firing rockets before israel launches a ground war. back to you in new york. >> gretchen: that's an important point. thank you so much. >> brian: you have an egyptian official going there. they're going to be there sometime today. they're not going to have invasion when the egyptian official is there. morsi is were under incredible pressure to break with israel, condemn with israel. >> gretchen: and libya and what happened in benghazi? the testimony today, general david petraeus will sit down in a closed door meeting under oath and say what he think actually happened. remember originally he said it was the videotape. will he change his story now? sources telling fox news that he will say that it was a terrorist attack. in the meantime, it seems like what was going on yesterday on capitol hill was a little heated because there seemed to be some interesting informati
at that point that this was a protest as a result of what happened with the film in egypt. he clarified that after more information came in it was not a protest. >> that said, senior republican house and committee said there are discrepancies, if you will, between what the former director said to today's lawmakers and what he said on september 14. >> testimony today was that from the start he told us this was a terrorist attack, terrorist involved from the start. i told him my questions and the impression we were given was that the amount of evidence was that it was a spontaneous demonstration. >> again, two major headlines of today, one with the former cia director told the committee that he believes extremist were responsible for the attacks very quickly after that, and number two, who or what was it that did the editing that the emphasized the role of the groups that were ultimately put in front on ambassador susan wright. that does not seem to be the case. seems to have come from elsewhere. perhaps the white house. dagen: the situation in the gaza strip getting worse. the oil market
with the hopes of brokering a truce and sending a message to palestinians. egypt is standing by the people of gaza in their pain, he said. people took advantage of the relative lull in violence to stock up on whatever they could. since israel began attacks, getting food has become harder and more expensive this man tells me, but the ceasefire didn't hold. israel announced on twitter hamas hadn't stopped firing into southern israel, and israel fired into gaza where the death toll is 19, including five children. the latest violence exploded when they fired the chief thursday, a barrage of rockets and missiles. israeli air force calling out precision strikes. in crowded gaza, the civilians bear the brunt. this child, son of a local bbc technician was 11 months old when he was killed by an israeli air strike. savannah, we've been speaking to palestinians here, and the sense they have is fear and anxiety. they're extremely afraid of what could be coming next on the horizon. the focus is what is it going to take to break the impact between the palestinian fax and the israeli government. so far,
